For Hakai magazine, Madeline Ostrander goes on quite the hike. She travels with a team that has collected data on northwest glaciers for more than 35 years. Madeline (@madelinevo) gives us the history of the project, the glaciers, and the people who study them. She describes observing one up close, step-by-step, through icefields and ice falls. image: Madeline Ostrander
